It is more distant from the metro station than we expect by looking at the map, at least, when you have a big bag with you. But once inside, you can feel the good vibe.
Great staff, awesome layout, convenient location and decent breakfasts. Great value for money and a nice place to stay.
Eco Hostel was a nice environmentally conscience place that recycles everything except people. The staff was friendly and helpful with finding places and riding the bus/subway system. Good breakfasts of fruit, toast, cookies, and coffee/tea. Good security, close to the metro, banks, laundry, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs, but $5000 pesos taxi ride from the bus terminal. But if you want you can take the metro red line #1 and get off at the Universidad Catolica Station then take a short taxi rid
We ordered a Taxi that should bring us to the bus terminal and when we got in, we wondered why the driver did not put the taxameter on and he told us, that he has a deal with the hostel with fixed prices and 1000 CLP would go to the hostel just for calling this taxi. It was twice the usual price. You could have called a taxi from any other place and it would have cost half of this price so ask for an independent taxi driver or call one by yourself. we felt very deceived.
got a bed for 5000 clp a night very good value for money tho its a bit far from metro but was good for one night stay
Peaceful, laid back hostel with friendly staff and nice areas in which to relax and socialise. Good breakfast, good WiFi that reaches most areas, always clean and a well equipped kitchen.
I stayed here for the first time six years ago and it was great returning there this year. It is very spacious, very clean, well managed, has a chilled and peaceful vibe with a great kitchen, lovely outdoor areas for chilling and a hammock too! The staff were all very helpful and kind. It is a great spot to share travel stories with interesting people of all ages. It is near the centre, but on a peaceful street without bar noise. It is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Cheers!
Very good value for money, nice breakfast, recycling bins everywhere and there's a hamac!!

Really nice relaxed hostel in Santiago with spacey rooms. Only negative point was that we arrived at the hostel al 7:30 AM, were we got stranded at the door until 9:30 AM before someone let us in. Apparently there had been a big party the day before, so the staff was still asleep...
Peaceful and relaxed, has a good age range, friendly staff, decent sized breakfast and in a quiet street with supermarkets nearby. Plenty of pockets to find people or to get away.
We stayed 6 nights and didn't once have an enjoyable shower. Either boiling hot or freezing cold (second floor showers). Kitchen is well stocked and hammock area is lovely. BBQ was nice way of meeting people. Hostel was quite empty so not great atmosphere. Staff were friendly and tours were available. About a 15min walk into central town or 5mins to metro. Overall good value for Santiago. Plugs in room didn't work with our UK-South American adaptor, only USB charger in TV room worked.
A very good hostel, not as posh as some I have stayed in, including Santiago’s nearby Andes Hostel where I stayed 12 nights. But Ecohostel where I spent one night had the better breakfast, plenty of whole grain cereal choices, fresh bananas and mandarin oranges and rolls. (I received a $9/night promo rate for Eco's 6-bed dorm; the rate is usually $16/night. At $9/night it was a good value, but at $16/night I would stay at Andes which is more upscale and more convenient to the Metro.)
